Honestly, John Haigh’s real conviction might be a goofier end than the one he got in the game. Clock Tower 3 just had him face ironic justice by falling into a vat of acid after fighting back the law.
Today, we’re forced to check out all of the Blobby Man’s home renovations, starting with the basement! Unfortunately it’s not just bad aesthetic choice that’s waiting for us, because he left a little surprise for us, and surprise I mean another Subordinate! Chopper is our toughest opponent yet, but it seems like amidst this puzzle basement lies an important secret for the Hamilton family…
So, theory time; Chopper is our Dad. It just seems like an appropriate twist given the…rather sudden history scene, and the fact that we’ve learned nothing about this guy.
It really seems like Chopper is a power rangers villain moonlighting in this game. I like to think that acid man, was cooking up some really really good party stuff for the Blobby man. Alyssa got to experience what that stuff does, in episode 5.
Oh nice trick ehhehe.
So while Corroder is the only Subordinate based on a real murderer, Chopper is clearly just Kratos Godofwar in his teen years. His very embarrassing teen years.
I wonder what Ron was up to during the whole “manor gets fucking obliterated by a clock tower” thing. I hope you find him and it turns out the blobby guy hired him to be this game’s scissorman.
“Alyssa, check out these wicked cool novelty clippers!” he’ll say, as he wildly mocaps towards her, unaware that flailing them around is making them a deadly tool.
SUPER UPDATE TIME!
Today, Chopper’s nice trick has landed Alyssa in a Rooder graveyard, full of souls who cannot move on thanks to Chopper’s dark magic! In order to free the lost souls of her ancestors and continue on her own quest to save herself and her mother from the horrors befalling the Hamilton family, Alyssa must travel through the graveyard, solving family mysteries and coming across powerful ancient magic that can fight back against Chopper!
WOW, A PODCAST!
It’s time for a new podcast! This time, real life friend heptameride joins me to discuss Ping Pong the Animation from 2014! One of Masaaki Yuasa’s lesser-known works, Ping Pong’s unique art style translates from page to screen in a remarkable way, making a powerful and dynamic sports series that shouldn’t be missed!
Because of my apartment’s layout, the music bounces around real good…which means some of the creepy noises sounded like they were coming from my fridge while I was getting a peanutbutter and jam sandwich. So yeah, a little spooked, thanks.
Also correct me if I’m wrong but the blobbyman said in that little “how to become an entity” spiel, you have to “rip out a heart of the same bloodline”. Does that mean all entities are related to a Rooder?
To summarize Chopper: He’s a noted redditor who’s fond of nice tricks and has the same exact reaction to them every time. He murders people by windmilling them with axes, except for that one time where he caused a car accident just to change things up.
Anyway, I can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction to the next entity. It’s gonna be A Thing, in the game where every murderer can accurately be described as “A Thing.”
